    Dana, wow…this is smashing and i can totally see why folks went pin crazy over your other one!!! it's magazine worthy and completely professionally done up. i wish i could master this look but my eyes are very round and i always feel slightly racooned afterwards. you, on the other more swell hand, rock it for almond shaped peepers. LOVED WELL! ♥

    question about eyeliner on your lower waterline: how long does that stay on? I've tried and it seems like the eyeliner I have is gone within half an hour. Is it the more expensive brands that work best for this?

    • https://www.blogger.com/profile/16765434513591686519 dana @ wonder forest

      You do tend to have to reapply eyeliner on the waterline, I have yet to find one that stays on ALL day. I do like anything from Rimmel though for a drugstore brand and it goes on nicely and stays put for a while.

    Seriously, what can you not do? You. are. so. AWESOME! If you get the chance, do you mind leaving a comment on my blog to maybe give me some advice on how to spice up my blog design a little? I don't have photoshop and I'm not really looking in to buying these to add on to my blog at this time. Just some easy suggestions would be great. That would be much appreciated, but if you don't have the time, that's totally fine! Thanks for being such an awesome blogger and youtuber. :)

    I thought an all black eye would look too much, but you make it really chic and wearable. Will ave a go at it later!
